We won the Third Annual Contest of Whatever for killing Buster the Possum! Hooray! I’ll post pictures of the kids’ prizes after they choose them. I can’t thank Evil Squirrel enough for hosting an awesome contest and, what’s more, having an amazing blog! Too much fun!

I’m doing something a little different today. Something out of the norm. My kiddos are off school for rodeo break (only us Tucsonans know what that is – Google it if you want) and I thought it would be fun to partake in a contest. A friend of mine entered The Anual Contest of Whatever over at The Evil Squirrel’s Nest. And I decided to give it a try. Basically, you must make Buster, one of ES’s cartoon characters die. And I employed the help of my girl spawn (8 yrs old) for set design and photography, and boy spawn (5 yrs old) for story writing. Here’s what they came up with.
Death by Minions: Buster’s Tragedy
Buster the possum was eating leaves and didn’t notice the minions were coming. They tied him to the train track, smashed his arms and legs, and killed him dead. Then they throwed him in the garbage. The minions left but the possum came back to life. He ran away to his little hole for safety. Then he ate some food and he lived happy.
So that’s it. Haha. I love how my 5 year old couldn’t bear the loss of Buster and brought him back to life. Too sweet. I also love how Buster is seemingly flipping us off in the afterlife. No shame in that possum’s game.
